This week our normally peaceful neighbourhood was hit by a real live tornado. On Saturday the council put an update bulletin through the door, which referrred to the event in quotation marks as the "tornado", but believe me I don't think the quotation marks are needed - it WAS a tornado! We got wind of it (oops, no pun intended) at about 1:00 p.m. on Thursday, and the photos looked like our street so much that Matt went home at lunch to check that there was no damage. Fortunately we were fine but they estimate that around 150 homes were affected; this picture is of the house that seems to have been damaged the most. Scary and way too close to home!
